Stolen: Mike Auldridge model resophonic Guitar with prototype cover plate


It almost makes me cry to report that the airlines "lost" my one and only resophonic guitar on Thursday, February 2. It left Boston and was supposed to go to Nashville via Atlanta, but the airlines don't have a clue where it really went. After this many days, I'm sure someone has walked off with it.

It is a black Mike Auldridge signature model Beard guitar serial # MA6-151. It will be easy to spot because it has unique cover plate (one of six made) that's kind of art deco looking. It has a name plate with my full name on the last fret, and it is in a Deluxe Calton case in Mint green with a sizable painting of the hearts and flowers logo (from the headstock) on it. The Calton case also has my name on it. The last time I saw it the guitar, the Calton case was in a soft purple Colorado case with green piping. It is the best sounding guitar I ever heard.

I will be forever grateful if folks keep their eyes out for it.

Heartbroken in Massachusetts,

Jennie L. Scott
